The Two Companies Combine User Generated Content to Benefit Clients

MGN Online, America’s #1 resource for Still and Animated News Graphics, announces a new relationship to share User Generated Content from Mobile Generated News® (MoGN) with StoryTeller by AccuWeather.

The StoryTeller Interactive TouchScreen has become the hottest on-air tool at broadcast stations across the country, including every one of the top 10 markets. Now, local content from Citizen Journalists can be shown on the StoryTeller Interactive TouchScreen in addition to displaying graphic images for News, Sports, Traffic, Weather and Entertainment. The StoryTeller Interactive Touchscreen Solution is the secret to fresh, lively, personalized, latest-technology communications that speak directly to viewers.

“This new Bundle relationship with AccuWeather StoryTeller is a great fit for both companies,” said Gill Davis, President/CEO of MGN Online. “We’re thrilled to provide our User Generated Content to enhance the StoryTeller TouchScreen display strengthening the elements to attract viewers, enhance coverage, and put stories literally at the fingertips of News Anchors and Reporters.”

Mobile Generated News® (MoGN) offers local Media Outlets with a simple way to Gather, Store, & Display User Generated Content (UGC) through a cost-effective Crowdsourcing Platform. MoGN enables News Media outlets to source UGC from a variety of places including Citizen Journalists within their communities. The MoGN Platform includes a “White Label” App or affiliates may purchase a “Branded App” using their own news organizations’ logos and elements. The Mobile Generated News® platform is also easily integrated into existing Mobile Apps. Either way, MoGN boosts content inventory, drives traffic to websites, social media accounts, and connects News Organizations directly with their communities.
